Between Mind and Brain: Models of the Mind and Models in the Mind

Britton, R. 2015. Karnac.

In this book Britton explores the relationship between mind and brain. He examines various psychoanalytic models of the mind, before discussing the unconscious models that shape the patient’s picture of him-/herself and others. The mind/brain models are mainly drawn from psychoanalytic practice but are supplemented from myths, religion, and literature. Britton also explores developments in adjacent scientific fields, such as quantum biology and evolutionary theory.
